Sour Cream Cutout Cookies

READY IN: 39mins
Recipe by podapo

This is a great recipe for cut-out cookies as no chilling time is required. You may find you need to add more flour to work with dough. Store in a tightly covered container. Makes a nice cake-like cookie.

Really nice texture and lighly sweet taste. I omitted the nutmeg (personal preference) and used "Smart Balance Margarine" in place of the shortening (again, personal preference). I doubled the recipe since I was making for a large event. I had to add a smidge more flour, but not much. I got about 14 dozen, that's 7 dozen 1 1/2" cookies per recipe. Worked great. Thanks for a nice recipe.
